The American Voice Anthology of Poetry

Edited by Frederick Smock
The American Voice looks to find the vital edge of modern American writing. The journal, whose contributors come from the U.S., Canada, and Latin America, often publishes work by writers denied access to mainstream journals. Writings from its pages have been regularly reprinted in prize annuals such as The Pushcart Prize, Best American Poetry, and Best American Essays.

This fifteenth anniversary anthology collects eighty poems from some of the most original and daring writers of our time. The anthology's contributors range from the world famous Jorge Luis Borges, Marge Piercy, May Swenson to the newly emerging Marie Sheppard Williams, Suzanne Gardinier, Robyn Selman and from the nationally read Wendell Berry, Reynolds Price, Barbara Kingsolver to the distinctly regional George Ella Lyon, Jane Gentry, James Still.

This volume brings together some of the best selections from an award-winning journal, making clear why Small Press dubbed The American Voice one of the "most impressive journals in the country."

About the Author

Frederick Smock, founding editor of The American Voice, teaches at Bellarmine College and has published two volumes of his own poetry and a travel memoir.

Reviews

"These first-rate poems, written by newly published, as well as veteran, men, and women of letters in a variety of forms on a multiplicity of topics highlight the social, political, and personal aspects of the human condition."—Elisabeth Beattie

"In a world so often focused on the boundaries that divide us, it is refreshing to encounter a volume that respects our differences in perspective but also reveres our common humanity. The searching voices of these poems, whose explorations range from daydreams to deathbeds, bring the reader to the edge of tragedy and back again."—Louisville Courier Journal
